Neighborhood Goliath mashes together its American and British roots to establish a unique version of guitar driven Alternative Indie Soul. Formed in Orlando Florida in 2011, and then relocated to London England in 2016,
Neighborhood Goliath features singer/lyricist/producer Trevor Dion Nicholas, guitarist Andrew Cooksley, drummer Steve Gilbertson, bassist Pete Hunt, pianist Steve Corley and co-producer J.S.T. Andrews. Together they craft electrifying alt-rock songs dripping with honesty, vulnerability and head bobbing swagger. These powerfully sung, guitar-based pledges carry themes of love, loss, addiction, social issues, stories of life and death all with sweeping emotional familiarity.
In 2015 Neighborhood Goliath released their debut EP Between Satellites & Settling featuring collaborations with Brian Ruppenkamp, guitarist and songwriter for LA based alternative rock band Slow Motion Celebrity. In 2017 they premiered their first full length album, Monster Victim Witness, which included genre bending collaborations with New Track City, the hip hop duo from Federal Way Washington as well as Clara Bizna$$, founding member of NYC’s irreverent riot-rap trio Handjob Academy.
With their new singles, Entire Life and Dark Stars releasing at the beginning of 2020, Neighborhood Goliath intends to establish continued growth through consistent sharing of creative and exciting music.
Influences Include: Incubus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse, Faith No More, Radiohead, Tears For Fears, The Smiths, The Cure, Pavement, Erykah Badu and Gorillaz.
